Greetings Node'ers,

Without further adieu, our next meetup is on Tuesday, June 5th, 2012 at 7pm. Join us for some free food, drinks, PRIZES!, and great presentations. Meet with other local node'ers and engage in active discussions.

I'm really really happy to announce that this meetup is also in collaboration with the Austin NoSQL Meetup, the Austin JavasScript Meetup, and the Austin Web Architecture Meetup. On that note, we're finalizing on a venue to support a larger crowd - look for an update soon.


  • Andy Wilson - Andy is a Field Engineer at VoltDB. Prior to VoltDB, Andy was the architect of Harvard Business Publishing's Higher Education E-commerce site, Co-founder of Visible Measures and has held senior software developer positions for the past 15 years.
  • TBA - Info Coming Soon


  • 7:00 - 7:30 - Eat/Socialize
  • 7:30 - 8:00 - On April 17, 2012, VoltDB announced the results of a Node.js benchmark that reached 695,000 transactions per second for a Node/VoltDB test application. In this talk, VoltDB will review key details of the benchmark, and discuss practical implications for Node.js developers, including the kinds of Node apps that can benefit by using VoltDB as a back-end datastore. The talk will include a brief overview of VoltDB?s in-memory architecture; it will discuss the Node.js client library for VoltDB; and it will provide information about how to get started building a Node/Volt POC.
  • 8:00 - 8:30 - Info Coming Soon

There will be a raffle at the end of the talk for a Kindle Fire (winner must be present to receive the award).

I'd like to give a special thanks to Travis Swicegood, Johnathan Herbert, Sandeep Parikh, D Keith Casey, and Dan Lien. Thanks for all the help in coordinating and making this event possible!
